Bug #24224 ibase_blob_get overflow
Submitted: 2003-06-17 09:12 UTC Modified: 2003-08-16 10:31 UTC
Avg. Score:5.0 ± 0.0

Status: Closed Package: InterBase related
PHP Version: 4.3.2 OS: Win2000 and Linux
Private report: No CVE-ID:
 [2003-06-17 09:12 UTC] cryo28 at rbcmail dot ru
Bug was reproduced on Windows 2000 + PHP 4.3.1 + Firebird 1.0(W2K) and on RedHat Linux 9.0 + PHP 4.3.2 + Firebird 1.5 RC3(Linux).

If BLOB size > 64K actual size of data returned by ibase_blob_get equals to Actual Size minus 64K.

Reproduce code:
while ($res = fetchRow($q))	{
	$val = $res->BLOBDATA;
	$blobinfo = ibase_blob_info($val);
	$blobhndl = ibase_blob_open($val);
	$image = ibase_blob_get($blobhndl, blobinfo[0]);
	echo $blobinfo[0]."\n";
	echo strlen($image)."\n";

Expected result:
Above script produces, for example, 50000 50000 if BLOBDATA size 50000.[OK]. But if BLOBDATA size more than 65535 bytes script producing something like this:

65978 442
i.e. 442=65978-65536.

ibase_blob_echo($VAL) works right.
